The Lesbian/Gay Chorus of San Francisco presents the world premiere of “My Agnostic Solstice,” words and music by Jack Curtis Dubowsky, commissioned by Noam Szoke.
The new piece for mixed chorus explores a topic requested by Mr. Szoke: what does an agnostic or atheist sing on a Christmas concert?
“My Agnostic Solstice” will be performed in LGCSF’s legendary annual “Christmas Crap-Array” cabaret, December 16, 17, and 18, 2010 at 8 pm at the EXIT Theatre in San Francisco.
Dubowsky has enjoyed a long relationship with the chorus, which has performed much of his work, including “Silent Holy Hanukah Bush,” the controversial “Magic Snow,” and the choral opera Halloween in the Castro. Dubowsky’s choral music is available at sheetmusicplus.com.
The world's first mixed lesbian and gay chorus, LGCSF is dedicated to building and enriching the Lesbian/Gay/Bisexual/Transgender (LGBT) community through song and a love of music. The Chorus has performed around the world, and hundreds of times in San Francisco. LGCSF was founded in 1980 by Bay Area musicians and community members.
